Prodisee Pantry opened November 18, 2003, as an outreach ministry. The ministry expanded and was incorporated as an independent tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit charity in 2005.
Following Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, the Pantry sent out more than 16,000 emergency food boxes and other relief supplies valued at several million dollars all along the Gulf Coast. Today, Prodisee Pantry has become a “hub of hope” in the community, with support from churches, organizations, individuals and businesses throughout the region.
Our mission is simply based on the Scripture, “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” (Matthew 25:35)
Families facing tough financial times are provided with food and information on additional support provided by our community partners. As a faith-based organization, the goal for Prodisee Pantry and the desire of its volunteer staff is to ease the hunger pains of Baldwin County residents in need. The Pantry also provides the community and local churches with a valuable outreach service ministry of faith and love.
WHO WE SERVE
Providing food to single parents, unemployed and under-employed households, families in transition, homeless, retirees and grandparents raising grandchildren is always deemed an emergency. Since 2003, over 185,000 families made up of 450,985 individuals from Baldwin County have received help from Prodisee Pantry.
We offer our services each Tuesday from 9:00 to 11:30am at 9315 Spanish Fort Blvd. (Hwy 31) in Spanish Fort, Alabama. We often receive calls for help that cannot be delayed until our regular distribution day. A volunteer can schedule an emergency appointment.
